The instructor of the course shall determine the grade to be awarded to the student.
Grades from a grading scale are averaged on the basis of their point equivalencies to determine a student's grade point average. Grades earned in non-degree applicable courses are not counted in calculating a student's grade point average. The highest grade (A) receives four points, and the lowest grade (F) receives 0 points, using only the following evaluative symbols.
|D||Passing, less than Satisfactory||1|
|*P||Pass (at least satisfactory; units not counted toward GPA)||-|
|*NP||No Pass (less than satisfactory or failing; units not counted in GPA)||-|
*Used in courses in which grades of Credit or No Credit are given. The units earned with a grade of Credit count as units completed. No Credit means the student is not charged with units attempted and is not credited with units completed.
The determination of the student's grade by the instructor shall be final in the absence of mistake, fraud, bad faith, or incompetency. Procedures for the correction of grades given in error shall include expunging the incorrect grade from the record.
I - Incomplete
This symbol is used in case of incomplete academic work for unforeseeable, emergency and justifiable reasons. Conditions for removal are set forth by the instructor in a written record which also indicates the grade to be assigned in the event that the student fails to meet the stated conditions. The student will receive a copy of this record, and a copy will be filed by the Dean of Admissions and Records. A final grade will be assigned by the instructor when the stipulated work has been completed and evaluated. In the event that the work is not completed within the prescribed time period, the grade previously determined by the instructor will be entered in the permanent record by the Dean of Admissions and Records.
An Incomplete must be made up no later than one year following the end of the term in which it was assigned. Established College procedures may be utilized to request a time extension in cases involving unusual circumstances. The I shall not be used in the computation of grade point average.
MW - Military Withdrawal
Military withdrawal may be requested when a student who is a member of an active or reserve United States military service receives orders compelling a withdrawal from courses. Upon verification of such orders, a military withdrawal symbol (MW) will be assigned for each course if the withdrawal occurs after the period during which no notation is made for withdrawals on the student's record. Military withdrawals are not counted in progress probation and dismissal calculations. Students granted military withdrawal may request refund of the enrollment fee. The entire enrollment fee will be refunded unless academic credit has been awarded.
RD - Report Delayed
This symbol is used only by the Dean of Admissions and Records for the purpose of indicating that there has been a delay in reporting the grade due to circumstances beyond the student's control. It is replaced by a permanent symbol as soon as possible.
The RD is not be used in the computation of grade point average.
